Tulsi - Holy Basil Ocimum tenuiflorum
Considered to be a sacred plant in India, this member of the mint family is also known as Holy Basil.
Celebrated in India for its purifying properties, tulsi has been used in religious ceremonies to raise the spirits and cheer the soul.
It's full of delicious aromatic essential oils which give it a rich taste that is reminiscent of spicy-mint.
There are lots of different types of tulsi and we use Rama or green tulsi, Krishna or purple tulsi and wild lemon tulsi in our Three Tulsi tea.
